Rest in Peace Peruvian Macusani

A few weeks ago, I got an email from the farm we bought Silver Sox and Bellesa from saying that the famous Macusani was not doing well. He is around 20 years old and his health has been failing. This morning we received this email from the same breeder.

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Macusani. As you knew he was failing fast, the vet was out earlier to help him along his way. He is buried overlooking the girl's field where he can keep an eye on "his herd". He will be deeply missed. I am so thankful his last cria is Happy!

We feel so lucky to have Mac's very last cria....ASH Macusani's Happily Ever After. I am confident that she will spend many years on our farm passing on her Daddy's genes and legacy.

Rest in Peace Macusani

Thank you for your tremendous impact on the alpaca industry in the United States. You hold a special place in our hearts! May the pastures be greener on the other side!

As I read your blog on the passing of Macusani, I got goosebumps all over. Macusani definitly left a lasting legacy on the industry and I am glad to see he left you a "Happily Ever After"
